Black History Month Campaign Photo Collection

Celebrating Black History

Join NICHQ in celebrating #BlackHistoryMonth with a collection of equity resources, articles, webinars, and toolkits to celebrate the Black community and honor this year’s official theme of Black Health and Wellness. 

February is Black History Month!

Celebrate #BlackHistory, #BlackHealth, and #BlackWellness with us. 

The official theme for 2022 focuses on the importance of Black Health and Wellness and acknowledges the legacy of Black scholars and medical practitioners in Western medicine, as well as other health and wellness workers, such as birthworkers, doulas, midwives, naturopaths, and herbalists. 

The importance of understanding our nation’s exploitative history and its impact on modern-day inequities cannot be overstated. NICHQ is committed to uplifting and building on the incredible work of Black health and wellness practitioners as we work to address and eliminate disparities in maternal and child health.
